『若不是從上頭賜給你的,你就亳無權柄辦我。』(約十九章十一節)

 

凡是臨到一個信靠順服神的人身上的事情,沒有一件不是神的旨意。這就足夠叫我們不息地感謝讚美了。因為神的旨意是世上最有希望的、最快活的、最榮耀的東西;祂也是全能的;只要我們肯順服信靠,沒有東西能阻止祂。

 

一個深受痛苦的人寫信給他的朋友說:『不管這件事情多麼不公正,多麼像出乎撒但,但我一想到這事臨到我,是神的旨意,並且是叫我得益處的,我就立刻覺得榮耀了。』感謝神,我們曉得萬事都互相效力,叫愛神的人得益處。就是被賣這一件事,基督尚且說:『我父所給我的那杯,我豈可不喝呢?』(約十八章十一節)如果我們生活在神的旨意中,我們的生是何等佳美?撒但給我們的一切襲擊,不但無力傷害我們,並且在半路上都已經變成祝福了H. W. S.


*******************************

 

"Thou couldst have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above." (John 19:11.)

NOTHING that is not God's will can come into the life of one who trusts and obeys God. This fact is enough to make our life one of ceaseless thanksgiving and joy. For "God's will is the one hopeful, glad, and glorious thing in the world;" and it is working in the omnipotence for us all the time, with nothing to prevent it if we are surrendered and believing.

One who was passing through deep waters of affliction wrote to a friend: "Is it not a glorious thing to know that, no difference how unjust a thing may be, or how absolutely it may seem to be from Satan. by the time it reaches us it is God's will for us, and will work for good to us? For all things work together for good to us who love God. And even of the betrayal, Christ said, "The cup which my Father gave me, shall I not drink it?" We live charmed lives if we are living in the center of God's will. All the attacks that Satan, through others' sin, can hurl against us are not only powerless to harm us, but are truned into blessings on the way. --- H. W. S.
